Early in her music career, Cherrelle (nee Cheryl Anne Norton) toured with Luther Vandross as a backup singer. I saw Luther on his “Busy Body Tour” in late 83/early 84, wonder if she was with him then? She eventually caught the eye of Tabu Records and signed a recording contract. Cherrelle paired up with the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to produce her debut album “Fragile“. Her first Top 10 R&B hit was this single, “I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On”.
